1. Mount K2, Pakistan and China

Mount K2, border between Pakistan and China Height: 8.611 m, Climber named “Wild Mountain”, K2 is the second summit of the world as high, after Everest. However, K2 beat his rivals in terms of the dangers and difficulties.

3. Ama Dablam, Nepal

On the night of 13/14 November 2006, a large serac collapse occurred from the hanging glacier, which swept away several tents at Camp 3, killing six climbers (3 European, 3 Sherpa). Eyewitness testimony indicates that Camp 3 had not been sited in an unusual or abnormally dangerous spot, and that the serac fall was of such magnitude as to render the specific placing of the tents at Camp 3 irrelevant.

4. Mount McKinley or Denali, USA

The mountain is regularly climbed today; in 2003, around 58% of climbers reached the top. But by 2003, the mountain had claimed the lives of nearly 100 mountaineers over time. The vast majority of climbers use the West Buttress Route, pioneered in 1951 by Bradford Washburn, after an extensive aerial photographic analysis of the mountain. Climbers typically take two to four weeks to ascend the mountain.

5. Half Dome, USA

The Half Dome Cable Route hike runs from the valley floor to the top of the dome in 8.2 mi (13 km) (via the Mist Trail), with 4,800 ft (1,460 m) of elevation gain. The length and difficulty of the trail used to keep it less crowded than other park trails, but in recent years the trail traffic has grown to as many as 800 people a day.
The Cable Route can be crowded. In past years, as many as 1,000 hikers per day have sometimes climbed the dome on a summer weekend, and about 50,000 hikers climb it every year.
From 1919 when the cables were erected through 2011, there have been six fatal falls from the cables. The latest fatality occurred on July 31, 2011.
Lightning strikes can be a risk while on or near the summit. On July 27, 1985, five hikers were struck by lightning, resulting in two fatalities.

6. Mont Blanc, France

There are deaths on Mont Blanc every year, and on the busiest weekends, normally around August, the local rescue service performs an average of 12 missions, mostly directed towards people in trouble on one of the normal routes of the mountain. There are routes that require knowledge of high-altitude mountaineering, a guide (or at least a veteran mountaineer), and proper equipment. It is a long course that includes delicate passages and the hazard of rock slides. Also, at least one night at the refuge is required to acclimatize to the altitude; less could lead to altitude sickness and possible death.

7. Mt. Hood, USA

As of May 2002, more than 130 people had died in climbing-related accidents since records have been kept on Mount Hood, the first in 1896. Incidents in May 1986, December 2006, and December 2009 attracted intense national and international media interest. Though avalanches are a common hazard on other glaciated mountains, most Mount Hood climbing deaths are the result of falls and hypothermia. Despite a quadrupling of forest visitors since 1990, fewer than 50 people require rescue per year. Only 3.4 percent of search and rescue missions in 2006 were for mountain climbers.

8. Cerro Fitz Roy, Argentina and Chile

The mountain has a reputation of being "ultimate", despite its average height (although being the highest peak in the Los Glaciares park, it is less than half the size of the Himalayan giants), because the sheer granite faces present long stretches of arduous technical climbing. In addition, the weather in the area is exceptionally inclement and treacherous. It also attracts many photographers thanks to its otherworldly shape. The area, while still fairly inaccessible, was even more isolated until the recent development of El Chaltén village and El Calafate international airport. The mountain climb, however, remains extremely difficult and is the preserve of very experienced climbers. Today, when a hundred people may reach the summit of Mount Everest in a single day, Monte Fitz Roy might only be successfully ascended once during the span of a year.

9. Machapuchare, Nepal

Machapuchare has never been climbed to its summit. The only attempt was in 1957 by a British team led by Jimmy Roberts. Climbers Wilfrid Noyce and A. D. M. Cox climbed to within 50 m of the summit via the north ridge, but did not complete the ascent; they had promised not to set foot on the actual summit. Since then, the mountain has been declared sacred, and it is now forbidden to climbers.

10. Mt. Everest, Nepal (Roof of the World)

Mount Everest, Nepal, The highest mountain in the world remains on top when it comes to danger, climbing difficult or, worse, loss of life. And if you thought that the height does not cost, wrong again.Merged, the final costs of an adventure Chomolugma, rise to approximately $ 25,000 per person, not a negligible amount of money in these times.From 1953, when Sir Edmund Hillary conquered the Everest for the first time, until the end of 2009, “Roof of the World” asked to sacrifice to 216 people.

11. Mount Matterhorn, Italy and Switzerland

12. Kangchenjunga, India and Nepal
